Whether you are looking for an active holiday or for some relaxation both can be enjoyed on this beautiful island of Rhodes. The peace and quiet can begin at Villa Maya (which is Greek for magic!). Situated in the quietest area of the development, at the edge of a traditional small village and just a 5 min drive from the spectacular and world famous village of Lindos. Villa Maya enjoys panoramic views of the surrounding hills, olive groves and the distant Mt Ataviros which can be viewed either while relaxing around the pool or sunbathing on the secluded 1st floor sun terrace. The house sits on one of the largest plots on the development affording our guests plenty of breathing space, the gardens are mature and inspiring! The villa is south facing and sun worshippers will relish the all day sunshine. When you want a change you are within a 5 minute drive of several wonderful beaches.

We have had a wonderful holiday in Dea and George’s villa, they and their team could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Everything is good quality in the villa just one thing missing a good sharp paring knife, so as you can see if that is the only complaint all is good in villa Maya. Once again thank you for sharing your home from home with us.
Excellent villa had everything we needed for the week
A lovely villa set on the edge of the village which is about 3 miles from Lardos, a very quiet location with a short walk to the village taverna. The pool was cleaned daily and the kitchen had every appliance you could ever need. We were a party of 6 which fitted in well, with 3 good size bedrooms. Would recommend hiring a car (s), no local transport available that we saw whilst there.
We visited Lardos several times, did the wine route and went to Rhodes Town, all interesting places.
great property, well maintained, quiet area well located for visiting local villages and restaurants.
Thank you Mike.
It was lovely to welcome you for your 3rd visit at the Villa and hope to have you again!
Warm regards, D & G
Excellent, quiet villa.
Really you will not be disappointed with this. Well equipped, excellent air con, great pool, quiet but convenient area. It is clear that the owner Dea (who was very helpful) has wanted to get things right here, and frankly - she has.
Thank you for being a great guest and for your very kind review !
The most perfect villa in a beautiful village
I can't recommend this villa enough.I haven't stayed in such a well equipped villa.The pool is just gorgeous and huge for the size of the villa. To sum it all up I couldn't find any faults at all in location or the villa or the hosts responses to all our needs. And thanks to the lovely Scotsman Will who showed us around and helped with recomendations .
Dea and George well done and thanks for letting us enjoy your special home .

A Beautiful Authentic Villa with Peaceful Surroundings
We had an amazing stay at Villa Maya. Loved it!! It was really lovely to stay in a such a peaceful and beautiful place with everything we needed.
The villa is stunning and set in lovely gardens. It was spotlessly clean and had a real homely feel. The welcome pack was great and better than we've had previously in other villas. We arrived late at night and it was all exactly as we needed.
The villa was spotlessly clean and full of character, the pool was very spacious, the rooms were lovely, the towels were good quality and there was even a box with bats and balls, snorkels and masks and badminton etc. which were really handy and appreciated.
The owners were lovely and provided all the information we needed. Overall a fabulous experience!
Thank you so much! Delighted that you had a great stay at our villa, our team thanks you too for being a great guest, hope to see you again soon!
Coast/Beach: Whether it's the fun of messing about on the water - pedaloes, canoes, banana boats, waterskiing (if that's your thing !) - or just lounging around on sandy shores, you'll be spoilt for choice. Within a 5 minute drive of several wonderful beaches. Travel: Rhodes Diagoras International Airport is a 40 min drive from the Villa. Hiring a car is strongly recommended. Direct flights from most major airports in the UK to Rhodes (Diagoras International Airport), main carriers are Easyjet, Ryanair, Monarch, Thomson, Thomas Cook & Aegean Airways. Flights and ferries from Athens to Rhodes Town. Car hire firms are aplenty-at the airport are the usual giants- Hertz, Avis etc, some local companies and AutoHolidays and Holidayautos which can be booked online and are often the cheapest. Distances: 5 mins walk to village, 5 mins drive to Lindos & Lardos beaches, 7 mins to Glystra. Full information guide with places of interest to visit, restaurants, activities, doctors, chemists, etc is available in the house. Further Details: It is just a 5 min walk to the village centre with its tavernas, mini-markets and the unusual and lovely bell tower and church of St. Gerasimos. 3 mins drive to large supermarket and ice-cream parlour/bakery. 5 mins drive to Lindos beach, cafes, ATM's, shops and supermarkets. Very vibrant night life with cafes, bars and nightclubs. Lindos is the most spectacular village on the island and just a 5 min drive away. A fabulous confection of sugar cube houses clinging to a hillside crowned by an Acropolis - a 4th century temple to the Goddess Athena - on each side an extraordinary vista of turquoise sea. Beaches of Pefkos, Lardos ( water sports) and Glystra within 7 mins drive, all golden sand. Go karting and Crazy golf in Lardos.

Rhodes Old Town itself is the best preserved medieval town in Europe - a vast walled citadel which is an UNESCO world heritage site. Take a walk along the top of the gigantic walls and get a birds eye view of the old town, Mandraki harbour and the azure sea beyond. Browse in the many tourist shops that crowd the busy cobbled streets, eat and drink to your hearts content (go on, you're on holiday!) in any one of the dozens of cafes and tavernas, visit the museums, mosques & the Street of the Knights where you will feel that you've stepped back in time. When you've had your fill exit through one of the many impressive gates and visit the New Town with its trendy shops and cafes, not forgetting to visit the 4 umbrella shops in Lambraki St! Enjoy!
